Logan Paul says he’s going to physically break Mayweather
MIAMI (June 2, 2021) – Social media sensation Logan “The Maverick” Paul showed off his skills during a media workout Wednesday at Miami’s historic 5th Street Gym as he approaches his special exhibit against the Great Floyd “Money” Mayweather headlining a SHOWTIME PPV this Sunday, June 6 from Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens.

Here’s what Paul had to say on Wednesday in Miami:
“This is all surreal. All about it. I told my manager and we kind of had an internal joke that until I stepped in the ring with him I didn’t think this fight was happening. But I think it’s safe to say I can believe it now. I think it happens. It is the week of the fights. I can’t imagine Floyd would back down now, but who knows? The old man is faking an injury. Afraid of the big child. I’m excited.
“The weight is great and we’re at around 195. The energy is great and I feel strong, fast, lively. I have no complaints. It’s the best shape I’ve ever been in. And I have to be because it’s an eight-round fight. This is the longest fight I have ever fought. So I have to be ready.
On training at the historic 5th Street Gym:
“There are great people who fought here. You have to put respect where respect is due. I just wanna come here and get high. It is such an honor to be in the presence of such wonderful people in such a historic environment.
Why this fight will be different from Conor McGregor or Canelo Alvarez vs. Mayweather:
“I’m just not them. I’m not going in there at 155 pounds. I’m not going with the fight meaning the whole world to me. I have nothing to lose. This is all going to be fun for me. I’m going to play with Floyd – I’m going to harass him and hit him hard. I’m going to break it down physically, mentally, everything. I don’t like to compare myself to other guys. As tall as they may be, I am not them.
